Alpha E Omega Iv Group's story

The Alpha e Omega Iv Group are renewing their loan from Banco do Povo Crédito Solidário (BPCS), and they are hoping to count on the support of investors once more to continue improving and expanding their businesses. The group members have a good relationship with one another and they are also well known in the community because of their businesses and the quality of their work.

Maria has a small shop in the centre of the community where she sells second-hand clothing at affordable prices. She also works as a cleaner to supplement her income and support her household, as her husband is currently unemployed. The loan will allow her to buy second-hand adults' and children's clothing such as trousers, blouses, dresses and shirts. The extra profit will allow her to continue investing in her shop, which she is soon planning to expand and make new improvements.

Isaltina sells sweets, Rosana sells clothing and Tereza provides electronics repair services.
